This week is the final week in the Crochet Dinosaur Series, and to finish we will be making a dinosaur bag to put your playmat and dinosaurs into when they are not being played with. Handy also for taking out with you.
The bag is made primarily of double crochet stripes, in four colours, yellow, sea green, red and white. I also added two bands of dinosaurs, so you know what is in this particular bag. The dinosaur bands are made in Tunisian crochet, something I have wanted to explore a bit more. I definitively enjoyed working out how to make these bands.
If you don’t know how to Tunisian crochet I have included instructions and a useful video to get you started. If you don’t have the hooks or are not sure about it however, you could always make the band using normal single crochet in a tapestry crochet style.
One thing I did learn was that Tunisian crochet is tighter than my double crochet and I probably could have gone up a hook size to make the bag more even. Since it is at the top and bottom however, it doesn’t really affect the bags use.

I hope you have enjoyed making everything in the Crochet Dinosaur Series, I know I definitely have and my children love playing with them. Thank you for joining me every week and I look forward to seeing you all next week for something new and different.
